Summary
"In this addition to the What Was? series, kids will experience what it was like to be in San Francisco in 1906 when the ground buckled in a major, catastrophic earthquake.

Not only was there major damage from the quake itself but broken gas lines sparked a fire that ravaged the city for days.
